today saying it doesn't come at an opportune time of the fiscal cliff, both the talks and the fact we're short on money. will it hurt his party or not? roland martin joins me. good to see both of you. ryan, you spoke very early on about how well you thought chris christie handled this sform politically and ever other way, but now he asks for fungd as republicans try to cut spending. is he hurting his own party? >> whether you're a republican or democratic governor you want to secure money from federal taxpayers. that's a classic move. it sure is. is it undermining republicans in congress? it probably is, but frankly chris christie is looking out for his own political future and it's his only option. new jersey is in a very tight fiscal situation because they have a balanced budget requirement. they can't run deficits the way the federal government can, and this has a huge impact on the state economy. frankly, i think you see more situations in which republican governors are going to be pitted against the republicans in congress because those governors, for example, they want that m

nervous in december is a bad sign. and that leads you back to the negotiations over the fiscal cliff. and i think this raises the pressure to get a deal done. that's important. and the part of the deal that is actually not being talked about, but which will be central, is the spending side. the sequester is a very bad policy. both sides agree it needs to go away. they have to figure out how. and the tax side has to be matched by entitlement reforms and you can pick 37 if you have the right entitlement reforms but only 36 if you have less and you could get 38 if you have more. there's a lot of work left to be done. >> let's talk about that, robert. on the spending side. do you think that there's any way the democrats get out of this over the next 18 or 24 months without really addressing spending and probably annoying a lot of their base in the process? >> well, the president has already put a lot of spending cuts on the table. let me partially agree with doug. the employment report today was, although it looked pretty encouraging if you look at the numbers underneath the numbers it was not all that encouraging. the labor force participation rate, the percentage of people who are in the labor force who are actually in jobs

what's happening now. nothing. at least on the most important issue facing the country, the fiscal cliff. there has been zero progress on a deal, no behind the scenes negotiating. no staff level talks, even. nothing. former senate majority leader george mitchell has ideas on how to get a deal. we'll also speak to a political panel, eric erickson and rich gaylen and what it will take to stop the suffering in syria. we show heart breaking pictures of these like a family fleeing for 21 months now. we know it's hard to watch. we think it's worth making sure the world knows what is happening inside the country. senator john mccain has also been keeping a close eye on syria. you'll hear from him tonight. >>> and the image of a man in the final seconds of his life about to be struck by a subway train. we'll ask dr. drew pinsky about why he was being photographed instead of rescued. there was a lot of people standing around on the platform. should they have gotten involved. a lot more at the top of the hour. >> we'll see you in a few minutes. >>> now our fifth story "outfront." did hollywood get access to classified information?

. >>> our fourth story, selling a fix. with just 22 days until the fiscal cliff kicks in and we all go sailing off. we're hearing a lot of talk about talking between the president and the house speaker. apparently, these talks are behind closed doors because they're talking over or at or something not good at each other. here is president obama today in detroit on his plan to raise taxes on families making more than $250,000 a year. >> that's a principle i won't compromise on because i'm not going to have a situation where the wealthiest among us, including folks like me, get to keep all our tax breaks. >> is the tough talk road show working for the president tonight? ben labolt is a former press secretary for the obama campaign. he had a vacation that's why he looks healthy now. and republican strategist terry holt. good to see both of you. terry, i want to start with you. the most recent poll we have "the washington post"/pew says by a margin of about 2 to 1, americans say republicans in congress will be to blame if there's not a deal on the fiscal cliff. so is the speaker losing the fiscal cliff pr battle? the american people ar

secretary tim geithner who said he's prepared to go over the fiscal cliff. that is not a good way to talk about what's going on right now. >> mr. reich, let me ask you the same thing. do you think there's code suggesting they are working towards something? because, doug, as you point out, the language was really harsh during this week. but all of a sudden, here we are friday evening and people are saying these kind of soft things that say maybe compromise. what do you think, robert? >> i think doug is right. it's too early to break out the champagne, but undoubtedly, the rhetoric is softening as we get closer and closer to the christmas holidays. these people want to go home. they want to have a holiday. they know that they cannot go home to their constituents and say essentially, i couldn't get anywhere. we're going to go over the fiscal cliff together. and that's particularly true and particularly difficult for republicans because the way the polls are showing the public's anger with this process, the republicans are going to get most of that anger. and they are the same polls that in fact, t

go over the fiscal cliff. just quickly, this is dovetailing what you said before. if the republicans have to take it on the chin with their base for talking about taxing the rich, could they be now discussing in broad terms how to at least say the democrats, you're going to take the hit for medicare, then? >> the deeper structural issue is this. this is not the first fiscal cliff. we have a fiscal cliff every year with renewing the amt, with fixing the medicare payment rate, the so-called doc fix. we make policy in a crazy way in this country. what i think republicans are trying to do is say let's look at structural solutions that can lower the cost of these programs over the long term rather than doing a patch at the last minute every darn year. that's the way we make policy and it is absolutely crazy. >> amen. >> don't go out tonight. we could have further details breaking as we speak. thanks to both of you. >>> coming up next, on "outfront" it's been exactly three months, three months, since terrorists attacked our u.s. mission in benghazi and yes, you haven't seen a head line about an arrest and any justice in any form. >>> also, new inform
